Well I haven’t tried the Copper Clay yet and I am at home, so I will say a few things about ......
Salad Dressing.
It is very important during the holiday season to make sure to eat enough salad, and having a good homemade dressing makes making a salad even easier.
This salad dressing is a cross between a traditional French vinaigrette and Caesar salad. Kind of. Don't be afraid of the ingredient list as many can be substituted.

In a clean, dry, mini food processer grind up a
1 clove garlic.
1 teaspoon of chopped onion or schallot.
(then add everything except the oil.)
2 anchovy fillets (just do it!)
2 dashes of Tobasco
2 dashes of Worcestershire
1 heaping teaspoon of Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard.
1 Teaspoon of salt (or more)
1/2 Teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 Teaspoon thyme.
3 Tbs. white wine vinegar (Pinot Grigio is good)
Mix well
Add 3 Tbs. of neutral oil like Canola or Grapeseed
Mix well
Add 5 Tbs. of good green fruity Olive Oil.
Mix well.

Taste, if it seems sour add more Canola oil.
Pour into your favorite small Grey Poupon bottle and store in the fridge. Makes about 6 oz for less than one dollar.
